What Is Live Baccarat?

Live Baccarat vs Online Baccarat

Online baccarat is the online version of the classic card game. The game is played in the same way as traditional baccarat, with two (or occasionally three) cards dealt to both the dealer and the player. The aim of the game is to guess which hand (the dealer’s or the player’s) will be higher.

In the online version of the game, the cards are dealt automatically by the computer and all outcomes are determined by a Random Number Generator (RNG).

Live baccarat works in a similar way, although this time the game is played with a live dealer and real cards. HD live streaming technology enables you to see all the action in crystal-clear quality, bringing an authentic live casino experience to you.

In live baccarat the cards are dealt by the dealer, who you can interact with via the live chat function. You may also be able to interact with other players, adding a fun social element just like you would experience in a physical casino.

Live Baccarat Game Types

At ICE36 we’ve got a great selection of live baccarat games to choose from. From Punto Banco to Mini Baccarat and more, there are plenty of options and games to try. To give you some inspiration, here’s a short list of some of our favourite live baccarat games and why we love them:

Punto Banco

Punto Banco is the most common version of baccarat, and in it players are only able to make one decision: whether to bet on the player (punto) or the bank (banco). This straightforward, no-frills version of the game is great for those who want to play classic baccarat, and for beginners too.

Chemin de Fer

In this French version of the game, the main difference is that the players compete against each other rather than the dealer. “Chemin de fer” translates to “railroad” in English, and it was given this name because the game is quicker than traditional baccarat (at the time, trains were the fastest mode of transport).

Baccarat Banque

Baccarat Banque is one of the older and less well-known versions of the game. In it, the banker is chosen at the beginning of each round. The role of banker is given to the player willing to bet the largest amount, and players bet on themselves to win.

Mini Baccarat

Mini Baccarat essentially follows the same format as classic Punto Banco games, except it’s played with lower stakes. This makes it a popular choice with those who are looking to make smaller bets. It’s also played on a smaller table than traditional baccarat, and the games are usually quicker than other versions of the game.

3 Card Baccarat

As the name suggests, in this version of the game both the banker and the player are dealt three cards (rather than the traditional two). In 3 Card Baccarat, the number of picture cards in a hand also plays a factor in determining who wins.

How to Play Live Baccarat

If you’re new to live casino games, it’s a good idea to familiarise yourself with how to play. Read our step-by-step guide below for everything you need to know about playing your first live baccarat game:

How to Play Live Baccarat
  1. Choose your live baccarat game

    With a variety of live baccarat games to choose from, you’ll be spoilt for choice at ICE36. Browse our live baccarat games above

  2. Decide on your budget

    Decide how much money you’d like to wager. Some games may have a minimum bet, so check this out before you begin.

  3. Place your bet

    Before the cards are dealt, you’ll need to place your bet on either the banker or the player. You can also bet on a tie if you like.

  4. Watch as the cards are dealt

    Once the betting time is up, two cards will be dealt to both the dealer and the player. Their values will be calculated, with 9 as the highest score in baccarat.

  5. Collect your winnings or play again

    If you guessed correctly, you’ll win the game. You can decide whether to play again, or whether to end the game and collect your winnings, which will be automatically added to your account.

How to Play Live Baccarat

Live Baccarat Seats

The number of seats refers to the number of people who can participate in a baccarat game. This is usually limited to seven or eight people, but some live baccarat games can have unlimited seats so you’ll need to check.

In order to join a live session with other players, you’ll need to find an open table first.

Live Baccarat Bet

In live baccarat there are three different types of bet. Check out our summary below to find out what your options are:



There’s also the option to bet on a tie, which occurs when both the banker and the player have hands of an equal value (this is very uncommon!).



If you make this bet, you’re betting that the banker will have a hand that is closest to the value of 9.



Bet on the player if you think that the player will have a hand that is closest to the value of 9.

Live Baccarat Demo

There are no demo versions of live casino games, including live baccarat. The closest you can get to seeing a demo is by watching a recorded live game session, which you may be able to find on the internet.

Watching a recorded video is a good way to familiarise yourself with how the game works before playing for real money.
